Back in mid-January, Dave met with Keanu Reeves to discuss Henry’s Crime and also got an update from him on “47 Ronin”, which was known to be in development. You can refresh your memory on what Keanu said by clicking here.

We now have news from Universal Pictures that shooting is set to kick off very soon, on 14th March, for this Carl Rinsch-directed epic tale of a group of Ronin who seek revenge on the overlord who killed their master and banished them, while also looking to restore honor to their country.

Alongside Keanu as Kai, the cast includes Hiroyuki Sanada (Sunshine, The Last Samurai) as Oishi, the leader of the Ronin, Kou Shibasaki (Battle Royale, Go) as the daughter of their master, Tadanobu Asano (Ichi the Killer, Mongol, the upcoming Thor and Battleship) as the overlord Kira and Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, The Brothers Bloom) as Mizuki.

With shooting underway in little more than a week, hopefully we’ll get some on set shots before too long.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
